My report last night stating Cliff Floyd had agreed to a deal with the Cubs was not far off. According to Jerry Crasnick, the Cubs are "moving closer" to signing Cliff Floyd and expect a deal to be done next week. The Mariners are also interested in signing Floyd, but Floyd has voiced his desire to play in Chicago. Floyd hit .244 with 11 homers in 97 games last year with the Mets. The Cubs plan to announce the signing of Ted Lilly tomorrow, and Daryle Ward and Jason Marquis next week.
